Alvin C. York went out on a routine patrol an ordinary, unknown American doughboy of the First World War. He came back from no-man's-land a hero. In a brief encounter on October 8, 1918, during the Argonne offensive, York had killed some two dozen German soldiers and, almost single-handedly, effected the capture of 132 others. In this definitive biography, David D. Lee has firmly established the facts of York's life, distinguishing them from myths that have grown up around the man. York claimed a special place in the hearts of his countrymen because his life seemed to show that the virtues of the common man continued to be a vital part of American society.
